Build a care package for someone facing homelessness

Cess Rebolledo, Senior Digital Marketing Officer

Crisis supports people across Britain to rebuild their lives away from homelessness. We provide specialist support all year round, which includes helping people to find their own stable homes and access education and training.

It can be difficult to know the best way to help people experiencing homelessness, which is why we have put together some advice on building a care package that could make a real difference to someone's life.

You can either build a virtual care package via our online shop, or choose to give directly to a person who is experiencing homelessness.

If you want to help someone directly, we recommend you do whatever you feel comfortable with. The most important thing though is not to use stereotypes to influence your judgement of an individual.

You can build a care package for someone experiencing homelessness by giving a virtual gift via our online shop.

By giving a virtual gift, you’ll be helping to provide someone facing homelessness with the items they need based on their individual needs and situation.
